ATCs: You won't find this job on my resume

"Never a high rise window washer."
by Liz Armstrong
I laughed out loud opening the envelopes from this month's Artist Trading Card [ATC] swap. The theme was "You won't find this job on my resume," a sequel to last month's ATC swap, "My first paying job."

Some jobs suit our skill sets, our sense of adventure or our interests. But some career paths we have no desire to pursue. Then again, there might be a job (in your distant past) that just doesn't "fit" on a resumé.

Can identify with one or more of these?

Cathy says she's got two left feet, so you won't find "ballet dancer" on her resumé.

Nursing is probably not a good choice of profession if you faint at the sight of blood.

I also find other wonderful surprises from traders when their squishy ATC envelopes come in the mail. Thanks, ATC artists! I enjoy every bit.
